    I installed a new graphics card, ran the driver and even updated the driver further on line. Media Center freezes on live t.v. and watching recorded t.v. but does not freeze watching video.

How much memory do you have installed? Graphics require a lot of memory (ram) to operate correctly. By the time you run the OS, support software, and all the other things on your system, it takes up memory space. Check that first. Even some graphics cards can add memory to them, check that too. My advice is you can't have enough memory in today's computers. Then check all you settings for optimal performance. If you change "one" setting, run your system before you change another setting. That way you'll know what worked.

Installed a Graphics card EVGA 6200 AGP 8X in my PC HP Media Center PC m370n now keeps showing failure notice


Did you install the drivers for the Graphics Card before you plugged the card into the computer? If not, remove the graphics card and reboot using your old video connection, install the driver then install the card and plug your monitor into the newly installed card. If you still have an issue try booting into safe mode.

Display drivers wont work


Dear,

There are two points.
1. Ensure that you are downloading and installing the correct driver for your graphic card.

2. If the fist condition is fulfilled then unplug the graphic card and check the system with the built in graphic card in motherboard and install its driver and get its functionality. When you are ensured that system is working with its own built in graphics then plug it again properly and install the driver. Ensure the proper plugging of your graphic card. Sometimes improper plugging of card cause this issue.

The second step will confirm the two things. one that your motherboard is functional with its own card and the reason is extra graphic card plugged in slot.. and the 2nd is that the card itself causing the issue not the motherboard and the issue was replugging...

best of luck...feel free to ask more...

My PC Gateway Media Center 820 will not post. Shows only a monitor test box on the screen. Fans are running. For awhile it would still operate sometimes and do this sometimes. Now only this. A friend says...


It could be the graphics card, try another power supply, somtimes the power begins to fail and not pump out enough to start the pc properly, so before changing the graphics try the power supply.

You could take the cmos battery out for 30 secs and then try to reboot the mechine.

Cant get my tv out to work


Boot in safe mode. (press F8 during boot, just before windows starts loading). If the desktop is then displayed, the graphics card is still functional. I am not very familiar wih NVidia graphics drivers but you may want to check (after a normal reboot) in the NVidia control panel. FIrst try cloning the image (both screens get same picture and resolution) If that doesn't work, try lowering the resolution. When you have found a resolution where the tv does display a picture, extend your dektop to it, set your monitor back to its default resolution, and keep the tv at the resolution you've found works.
If nothing out of all this helps, I think you should try reconnecting (and replacing, if all else fails) the cable connecting PC and tv. If that doesn't solve the problem either, well..then I'm out of ideas. The only option left is that some hardware is broken, and I can't fix that from here.
What you could try is to reinstall your graphics driver, although that is not liely to help, since you've only installed it recently.

I hope this solves your problem,
Yannick.

TV freezes - is it the graphics card?


Possible overheating issue. If it's a graphics-intensive game, it tends to push the CPU and graphics hard harder than when you're just surfing the web, which generates more heat.

Trying opening the case and see if you have dust bunnies - any buildup of lint or dust on air intake areas. Canned air is good for getting rid of that. Also verify that all fans are spinning. The fan bearings will seize up after a while and will probably need to be replaced.

As a temporary measure, try removing the side panel on the case if that's feasible. May help some with cooling and can tell you if your problem is heat.

Media Center - Live TV not working


I am assuming your computer is intel. Have you tried reinstalling your video/graphics driver? Go to the intel website and search for a driver update.

Windows XP Media Center, systems freezes; suspect Radeon x600 xt


Make sure all of the fans inside your computer are still functioning. One of them could have stopped working and it is causing the card to over heat.

Windows Media center recorded TV playback


Some possible causes can be system heat causing the video card to freeze. Sometimes it can also be related to the video driver or MPEG2 decoder. Make sure to use the right decoder and filter for the video playback.
